Prepaid gsm card with data transfer for Romania

Hi,

I will soon leave to Romania with my friends. We will sleep in different hotels and travel partly independently. It would be convenient to buy a local prepaid card for mobile phones to stay in touch at low rates.
Can I ask a kind Romanian to suggest a provider, please? I need it for 10 days, domestic calls is enough, preferably with data transfer included for internet access.

Thanks in advance!
Kris

Vodafone Romania

Best option for pay as you go and available most places. www.vodafone.ro - google translate does a pretty good job.

If you are coming down to Brasov - gives us a msg!!

Thanks for a quick reply Gavin. I have few more questions if you don't mind answering.
TOTAL 7 plan seems to fit all my needs. The website says something similar to "if charged between 7 and 8 euro, TOTAL 7 is activated automatically". So the card is initially empty? Can I do the initial charge at the same place where I buy the card? Is it available at petrol stations?

Thanks!

A quick look seems to say it is 6€ for the card and another 7 for the extra option - though it appears until 6 may you get a free bonus that might fulfill all your needs. I suggest that you stop in first town after you cross border and go to a vodafone shop - the guys there will sort you out with the best value option for your needs, get your internet settings working etc. no stress - Usually cute girls working for Vodafone too!

Are you coming through Ukraine - or Slovakia/Hungary ? If Ukraine - make time for a stop in Uzgohorod.... cool town ... track down the Red Bull Bikers Bar...

I will come through Slovakia and Hungary. Thanks for the tip about Uzgohorod. I've been waiting so long to convince a group of friends to go to Romania... At last!

Thanks for mobile info,
Kris
